From $123 per personFree Inquiry
Over 10 hours' transit time at Beijing Capital Airport is enough for you to do this Great Wall tour from Beijing airport. After taking customs or immigration inspection, you will meet our guide outside the exit and then be escorted from Beijing airport to the Mutianyu Great Wall by a comfortable drive.

We will arrive at the scenic area after 1-1.5 hours. Mutianyu Great Wall, built in 1368 under the direction of General Xu Da, is one of the famous Great Wall sections in China, which is unique for housing dense watchtowers. After the ticket-checking, you will take a cable car up to the ramparts with the company of our guide, and then hike along the stairs to enjoy the great scene of Great Wall winding along the mountain ranges to the distance.

The Mutianyu hiking usually takes 2-3 hours. After that, we will still take the cable car to get downhill. Then your Great Wall of China day trip from Beijing ends here and you will be transferred to the airport for your onward flight.

Tour Highlights
Mutianyu Great Wall
During the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), Mutianyu Great Wall was the important defensive screen along the northern border of Beijing, connecting Beishichang Great Wall on the east and Jiankou Great Wall on the west. It is the longest Great Wall section in China with a total length of 5,400 meters (5,900 yards), and now 2,250 meters (2,460 yards) of it is open to the public. You can see 23 watchtowers along the rampart every around 100 meters (110 yards), and there are three of them standing side by side at Zhengguan Terrace. Zhengguan Terrace, also known as Mutianyu Pass, consists of two floors to store grains and station troops in old times. The other distinctive watchtower is the Big Corner Tower at the eastern end of the ramparts. It is the highest point of the eastern part of Mutianyu and can provide great shots of the Great Wall.

    We thought we really got value for money as the Great Wall tour to Mutianyu was up to an outstanding level. Our guide Selina picked up and offered thoughtful service along the way. She spoke fluent English and shared everything she knew about the Mutianyu Great. We spent a good time and truly enjoyed this trip.

    We visited the Mutianyu Great Wall when we had one day’s transit time at Beijing Airport. It was really a worthy tour. Many thanks to our driver and guide. They were enthusiastic and responsible. Under their guidance, we enjoyed this Great Wall tour. Climbing it was tiring but happy. We also learned its history and development from our knowledgeable guide. So wonderful a tour! I would choose TCG again and visit Beijing carefully if I had another chance!

    Thanks for the good arrangement of our guide, our transit time at Beijing Airport was made good use of. We took near 2.5 hours to climb the Mutianyu Great Wall, the famous world's wonder. The scenery was so luring and fantastic! Thank TCG and I would explore other spots in Beijing if I had time!
